Sending a little { note }


Photo by me. Post card texture by Pink Sherbet Photography.

So I feel a little out of the blogging loop and wanted to drop you all a little note to let you know what I've been up to. Life feels like its going 100mph right now (in a good way! though I do wish I could slow it down just a tad.)

Here's what we've been up to (I feel like such a grown up)

1. We've been working away on setting up the new bidness. If you've missed me whoring it out - here it is again ;) www.927photography.com. (or click on the little logo to your right) And to those of you - friends, family, fellow bloggers - who have stopped by to check it out and leave us a little comment love, I can't thank you enough. The only way I can keep going is by hearing all your encouraging words and well wishes. So THANK YOU!


2. Rich and I are officially house hunting! Really, really exciting (and totally frustrating stuff) We were approved for a loan a couple weeks ago and now the hunt is officially on. As is my obsession with decorating and remodeling. (My DVR is filled with HGTV shows) I know, I know - I'm getting a little ahead of myself but that's the exciting part! And it's what keeps me sane in this crazy real estate market.

3. As if house hunting and starting a business wasn't stressful and expensive enough - I'm in the market for a new car. Yes - I've gone completely crazy. But my Audi (Snowflake) is in shambles and it's just not worth putting more money into it. So the car search is also officially on and with my birthday this weekend....who knows?

So that's why I haven't been around the blogging world as much as I would like. I hope to get back into my personal photography and take more photos for me (I'm gonna need some wall art for our new home!) and I also hope to use this space to share more about our experiences starting a new business and buying our first home. And of course I'm going to need your decorating expertise!

Thanks for listening...hope everyone is doing fantastic! Lots of love! XOXO

Good luck with the househunting, what an exciting experience it is to buy your first house together and make a home out of it.
Happy Birthday!

Wowza lady! You got a lotta things going on! Best of luck with them all! XO

Sometimes life intrudes! I often feel that blogging and, more importantly, reading other blogs, could easily be a full-time job in and of itself, ha. Easy to fall behind when you're distracted by living! Enjoy and good luck with all of that!
